The Skeeters Almost Looked Like Predators in 'Falling Skies' Concept Designs

The TV series Falling Skies ended it's first season and I thought I'd share some of the best concept art I've found for the show.

The first set is by Jerad S Merantz for the "mech" designs.

This was the final design they went with. Notice that its a bit smaller than than the final design and incorporates the alien pilot's left hand.

Here are some really cool designs he'd come up with that are more humanoid in two cases and more alien in the middle design.

Producer Greg Beeman hosted some concept art by Todd Masters and its pretty cool.

This set of concept art featured current styles of heads for the aliens. They're nicknamed "skitters" in the show. Notice the alien headcrest looks very predator-like.

This concept design shows the inner workings of the costume. It looks really uncomfortable.

Official Synopsis
Falling Skies is an exciting new series from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Noah Wyle (ER, TNT's The Librarian movies) stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a therapist who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic situation. The series also stars Drew Roy (Lincoln Heights) as Hal and Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom's two sons; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps run the group's commissary. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT's Into the West) will play a recurring role as a fierce resistance fighter.
